To launch our topic Flight, Year 5 and 6 released balloons on Thursday afternoon.

The children were all very excited.

We all counted down from 10 and then watched the balloons drift up and away.

Unfortunately one did not make it past a tree and two were later found in Potters Bar football club!

Hopefully the others will end up as far away as possible.

The children attached tags with the school's address so that, if they are found, someone could contact the school to let us know where the balloon managed to reach.

Keep your fingers crossed!
